Vivid Sydney  2018

25th – 28th MAy 2018

This is the opening of Vivid. This is the only date I can set as I’ll be in Africa. Book now as this is the opening of Vivid and places will be hard to get.

The images below is just a small snap shot of what was taken at Vivid.

I’ve added an extra day due to the feedback from 2017 crew, Some felt they needed some down time, so I have added an extra day so people can have the down time. I personally will be going out each night but if you feel you would like to have a night off, then please do so.Also with each night you don’t have to stay out to the end . Vivid starts at 6pm and goes through to 11 pm each night. Most of the afternoons you have down time, one day we will be doing a whale tour which is included in the price.

Your accommodation is not included and no meals are included apart from the Whales Tour where your lunch is included.. That is up to you where you wish to stay but I’m staying at the Napoleon on Kent.I simply went to their website to book. Closer to the time, these prices will increase. If this tour is for you, book the same place as I’m getting my 3 nights for $432 at the writing of this. Most places are around Sydney are between $210 -$300 a night and this works out to $144 and it is within walking distance of where we go.

Scroll down the bottom where you can watch a 6 minute video and I hope this inspires you.

Cost  $700.00

Vivid is such an exciting event. It’s in my opinion the hallmark in night photography. It’s fresh, it’s uplifting, it’s inspiring and you see the heart of how creative people are. I love Vivid for the fact that you do see the wonder of what lights can do and how they can transform a place.

Every year Vivid Sydney is different which is great if you are going back time after time.

Doing Vivid Sydney  Workshop I feel inspired as it takes you on another photographic journey where you learn to advance your night photography and photography in general.

My Vivid Sydney  Workshop also takes in the whales as I mentioned earlier on one of the afternoons and this is sensational.No  words can describe the emotions you feel when you see the whales right alongside the boat. These gentle giants of the seas are tender and have a strong sense of family.

If in the event that you have had enough and would like to go back to your hotel room, you can as there is no obligation to go right to to 11pm. I will take any guest who wishes to go the full distance until 11pm. In 2017 on our last night I had 3 guest who went through to 11pm, the other 7 retired after several hours and that’s a good thing as I want you to enjoy your time and if relaxing earlier enables you to stay fresh, then that is great.




Having fun with the camera is all part of what photography and Vivid is all about.

The whale watching is  an epic highlight and will always put a smile on your face. I love this part of the programe so much.
